Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies.

This is my new favorite cookie recipe. It took me a while to get the flour amount right so that the cookies are not too dry and brittle, as often happens when baking without wheat. 

Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes 20

250 g (1.1 cups) butter
1 dl (0.4 cups) caster sugar
1 dl (0.4 cups) brown sugar
2 eggs
4.5 dl (1.8 cups) flour (I used 3.5 dl organic cornmeal and added 1 dl of potato starch)
0.5 tsp baking powder
pinch of sea salt
200 g dark chocolate chips (7 ounces)
1.5 Tbsp. minced rosemary (I used fresh but I guess you could also substitute this with dried rosemary)

Set your oven to 200 degrees C (390 degrees F). Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a bowl, mix the flours, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl beat together butter and the sugars until soft and creamy. Continue to beat the mixture and add the eggs one at a time. Gradually beat the dry ingredients into the butter-sugar mixture until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and minced rosemary by folding with a spatula.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoon, about 5 cm (2 inches) apart onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently press the cookies to get a bit flatter and smoother surface.

Bake in the preheated oven for ca 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned. Allow the cookies to cool down for a while on the baking sheet before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

Capsule Wardrobe and Knitting. Part 1. My Capsule Wardrobe Knitting Goals.

Before my preganancy I started to read about capsule wardrobes and decided to try and minimize my own pile of clothes. During these past two years I've been trying to define my own stye by really focusing on which clothes I wear over and over again, and which ones are just taking space in my closet.
And the results have been a bit surprising. I have always thought of myself as a colorful person and I thought I loved a bit quirky clothes. But the fact is I don't actually dress the way I imagined I do. I mean, I own(ed) those kind of clothes, but I seldom wear (wore) them. In the reality I kept reaching for the same basics over and over again and feeling the most comfortable wearing them. I do love colors, just not wearing them. It meant I had to redefine my style, my "uniform" and also my knitting queue. I cleaned away everything I didn't really wear and started to buy good quality basics instead. I also cleaned my knitting queue, replacing things that I liked only…
